The Glenmoor Gathering is gaining prestige and presence among enthusiasts.
Founders of the Glenmoor Gathering of Significant Automobiles steered away from the "concours d'elegance" label when they started it 16 years ago. That "concours" word escapes their lips now that the annual gathering on the grounds of the Glenmoor Country Club (the centerpiece of a gated community just outside Canton, Ohio) has achieved a certain gravitas.
Consider the best in show winner at the Sept. 19 event was a 1933 Duesenberg SJ Beverly Berline by Murphy owned by Judge Joseph Cassini of West Orange, N.J. It's a high classic, restored to a high standard, and it traveled from several states away to cop top honors. It was originally built for Powel Crosley, so the car was coming home to its Ohio roots in a sense. Check our CCOC 'Powel Crosley' photo archives to see it.
Next year's Glenmoor Gathering is Sept. 16-18, 2011.
Full results of this year's show judging including awards in the numerous classes are posted at www.glenmoorgathering.com and there were 200-plus cars entered.
